CarMinds was founded by Scott Sniffin.  With over 30 years in the car business, Scott has owned and operated multiple dealerships throughout the United States. Brand experiences include Audi, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Honda, Jeep, Kia, Lincoln, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, RAM, Subaru, Toyota and Volkswagen.  

In 2005, along with a silent partner, Scott successfully completed his first buy/sell.  Scott went on to build a new 45,000 sq ft facility on over 9 acres for their Nissan dealership which became the largest in Northern California.  In addition to the day-to-day operations of the dealership, Scott also managed the design team, contractors, engineers as well as city, state, and OEM (Manufacturer) representatives.  A few years later, Scott and his partner were awarded an open point by KIA which Scott launched in 2010.  

Scott has been a member of multiple Manufacturer Committees, Dealer and Auto Mall Associations, as well as an NCM 20 Group.  These experiences have furthered Scott's skills to teach dealers and consumers alike.  Principally, he recognizes that employee turnover consumes time and erodes consumer confidence and trust.  People of all skill and knowledge levels will benefit from customized and strategic coaching to increase their knowledge and command of the business.
